I don’t know who’s behind the new @gatesandgarages but I do know that it’s a must-follow for anyone who uses the platform like I do, and that is to get a look into their city – and their world – from someone else’s perspective. In this case our guide takes us wandering through the alleyways and sidewalks of East Van, sharing artifacts that only exist there. Peppered with witty narration throughout, the author/photographer claims to be one Vladimir P. Footlocker, which is surely a pseudonym.

Below are a few samples, HERE is the account. Enjoy!

Purple reign, purple reign.

Nice hand painting on Martino's iconic statues, with a dash of local patriotism. Bellissimo!
